About Sandy & MTA


Many referring doctors know it. And patients we’ve treated know it. They’ve experienced our caring, knowledge, dedication and results first hand.

Doctors know that we go out of our way to work closely with them and their patients throughout therapy and rehabilitation. They also know that we educate patients so they fully understand their condition, how to improve it and how to prevent reinjury.

That’s why so many doctors send us their most complex cases, and so many patients come to us for second opinions.

You can trust that you are always in good hands at Manual Therapy Associates. The road to healing, recovery and good health is well within your reach.
